We stand for innovation and knowledge transfer for the sustainable use of soils

Our main competencies for maintaining and improving soil fertility for sustainable land use are:

  • Developing environmentally friendly, resource-efficient fertilization strategies
  • Developing process analysis and assessment tools for soil fertility
  • Assessing soil quality and yield potential
  • Developing concepts for target-oriented animal and wildlife farming (e.g. bees and sheep, red and fallow deer)
  • Developing monitoring methods for analyzing water and solute flows in the laboratory and field
  • Comparing process analyses and assessment methods on soil fertility in the global context
